The more I read about it, the more confused I get. The way I've been doing it for quite some time is to make /var a separate partition, put the home directories on /var/home, and then bind-mount /var/home on /home. In /etc/fstab that's: /var/home /home none bind 0 0 To keep SELinux happy, you need to set up an equivalence of /var/home to /home: semanage fcontext -a -e /home /var/home It's all completely transparent in the running system. The only time I have to remember that it's set up that way is when I'm looking in my backups and need to know that home directories are backed up as part of /var. -- Bob Nichols "NOSPAM" is really part of my email address.
